Excellent lens in optical point of view. F2.8 is a bit softer but from F4 it is very sharp. F8 provides excellent resolution which hardly will be matched by anything less than lets say FA*200/4 Macro.
Contrast is good, rounded aperture blades provide nice bokeh, WR is fine..

Just that AF behavior could be better. For portraits its OK. For close-ups with AF it sometimes hunts hardly even on K5.

Problems:

Missing focus limiter and aperture ring.
